|Wind Tunnel Testing with Fast Time-Response PSP - Schairer, Edward|
Although proven successful for steady pressure measurements, extension of the pressure-sensitive paint (PSP) technique to unsteady flows, especially for rotorcraft, is considered quite difficult. This is partly because of the complex chemistry of a pressure-sensitive paint which has both fast time- response (greater than 1 kilohertz (kHz) as opposed to a typical PSP time response of 1 hertz (Hz)) and a self-referencing capability (often provided by adding a second pressure-insensitive luminescen...

Unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) computations are presented for the flow past a flapping NACA 0012 aerofoil to study the effect of various motion parameters on the propulsive efficiency and thrust coefficient. The RANS solver used to obtain the timeaccurate solutions is based on an implicit dual time stepping scheme with finite volume nodal point spatial discretization.

|Infrared Communications for Small Spacecraft: From a Wireless Bus to Cluster Concepts - Webb, Suzanne C.|
Nanosatellites operating singly or in clusters are anticipated for future space science missions. To implement this new communications paradigm, we are approaching cluster communications by first developing an infrared (IR) intra-craft wireless bus capability, following initially the MIL-STD-1553B protocol. Benefits of an IR wireless bus are low mass, size, power, and cost, simplicity of implementation, ease of use, minimum EMI, and efficient and reliable data transfer...

Jet-powered model tests were made to determine the low-speed longitudinal aerodynamic characteristics of a vertical-take-off and-landing supersonic bomber configuration. The configuration has an unique engine-wing arrangement wherein six large turbojet engines (three on each side of the fuselage) are buried in a low-aspect-ratio wing which is tilted into the vertical plane for take-off. An essentially two-dimensional variable inlet, spanning the leading edge of each wing semispan, provides air f...

When developing a domain model, it seems natural to bring the traditional informal tools of inspection and verification, debuggers and automated test suites, to bear upon the problems that will inevitably arise.

Automated testing has repeatedly proven its considerable worth, to the extent that an entire design philosophy (Test Driven Deve...

|The Distribution of Cosmic-Ray Sources in the Galaxy, Gamma-Rays and the Gradient in the CO-to-H2 Relation - Strong, A. W.|
We present a solution to the apparent discrepancy between the radial gradient in the diffuse Galactic gamma-ray emissivity and the distribution of supernova remnants, believed to be the sources of cosmic rays. Recent determinations of the pulsar distribution have made the discrepancy even more apparent. The problem is shown to be plausibly solved by a variation in the Wco-to-N(H2) scaling factor. If this factor increases by a factor of 5-10 from the inner to the outer Galaxy, as expected from th...
